Elizabeth Taylor

She is said "the last star" in the world. Engaged the naturally born beauty and the afterward developed wisdom, Elizabeth Taylor owned nearly everything a woman (or even any human being) might dream. But still she passed away in the last week. What left behind her are plenty; what brought away with her were little. So, if even a star like Elizabeth Taylor, who lived and enjoyed whatever she wanted during her life, left the world like this, what does it mean as being alive?

Matthew (16:26)

What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

In Chinese Translation (马太福音 16)

26 人若赚得全世界,赔上自己的生命,有什么益处呢?人还能拿什么换生命呢?

Why do we live?

If there is no afterlife, why don't we simply enjoy this life unlimited? Where does morality come? Why are we taught to be generous and self-sacrifice? All of them simple make no sense at all if we have only one life and it is done afterward.

And therefore it says, "Every man for himself, Heaven and Earth will destroy".

To the other, who believe afterlife, what are you doing now for your future?

May Elizabeth slept in peace.
